Baboon syndrome is a combination of diffuse symmetrical erythema on the major flexural areas and V-shaped erythema on both upper anteromedial thighs. Infectious agents have been described as possible triggers. We describe for the first time baboon syndrome in a child induced by a coinfection with Epstein-Barr virus and cytomegalovirus.
